PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Kohli, winning captain and Man of the Match: We didn’t feel like we had enough on the board at the break. But we knew if we had a good start we have a good chance of defending it. We knew if we don’t take wickets it would be difficult. To be honest, the wicket wasn’t easy to bat on throughout the day. Bhuvi’s spell became even more important because we knew the wrist-spinners would do damage in the middle. The deliveries he got the batsmen out with were unplayable. You can count on Bhuvi for getting the breakthroughs. Two young spinners bowling with a lot of heart, speaks volumes about their characters. Really augurs well for us how the team is shaping up. I always try to create that kind of motivation for myself. Sometimes things don’t come off for you but I try and stay in the same zone. It wasn’t easy to bat, plus the bowling attack was quality as well. Came off today, so it looked nice. Didn’t come off in Chennai, so it didn’t look nice.
